Yes, I will soften the language a bit, but I won't mention a DELETE payload. If some implementations do it. others may come to expect it. We don't want to encourage that by suggesting that it's a good idea.

Should an implementation be prohibited from sending an empty delete payload in this case? I would prefer wording like the following: "with no other payloads except an optional empty delete payload".
